In 2019, it seems ridiculous to only wear an item of clothing once—especially if the garment in question is a one-of-a-kind red carpet gown.

Famous women like Cate Blanchett, Michelle Obama and Duchess Kate Middleton have made no secret of their love for recycling their fashion choices, and have done so on multiple occasions.

Blanchett even discussed the importance of wardrobe recycling in a 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying: "Particularly in today's climate, it seems willful and ridiculous that such garments are not cherished and re-worn."
In the same interview, Blanchett's stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, continued her sentiment, saying: "We need to get the word out to get rid of this ridiculous notion that dresses cannot be worn twice! Beautiful clothes should last a lifetime."

Below are a handful of celebrities who happen to agree with Blanchett, helping to prove that there's absolutely nothing wrong with outfit repeating.
